A. To add a change command
To add a change command which is required for performing a subsequent analysis command, use the following procedure.
In addition to being used for a new analysis, the change command is used to change the support conditions, active/inactive member status, load conditions, etc. The stiffness matrix being solved will be reset when a change command is used.
- Select the Change tab.
- (Optional) Check the After Current option if you previously selected the analysis command in the input file list within the Analysis - Whole Structure dialog. This option allows you to specify specifically where the command is added. Otherwise it will be added to the end of the input file.
- Click Add. The change command is added to the input file.
